Recipes for Homemade Facials
Home Spa Party Recipes for Facials
Lemon Facial Mask
Ingredients: 2 tablespoons sour cream, 1 teaspoon finely ground oatmeal, 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice, 1 drop lemon essential oil and cucumber slices (optional)
Mix the sour cream, oatmeal, lemon juice and essential together in a bowl. To use, massage over clean face and neck skin and then rest for 10 minutes with cucumber slices (if you have them) over your eyes. Rinse well with warm water. Always use Lemon Facial Mask immediately for best results — the lemon juice will cause the sour cream to curdle if it is not used quickly. (courtesy of www.SpaIndex.Com )

Ingredients: 1 medium size apple (grated) and 5 tablespoons of honey
Mix the grated apple with the honey to make a mask. Smooth over skin then let sit for 10 minutes. Rinse off with cool water. (courtesy of www.SpaIndex.Com )

SENSITIVE SKIN CUCUMBER MASK
This mask is perfect for sensitive skin. Chill it in your fridge before use to make it especially soothing.
Ingredients: 1 tablespoon brewer’s yeast, 1 tablespoon finely ground oatmeal, 1 whole cucumber, 2 tablespoons plain yogurt or sour cream and 1 teaspoon honey.
Mix together the yeast and oats in a small bowl and set aside. Peel the cucumber and place it in a small food processor and process until only liquid remains. Add the yogurt and honey and process further to mix. Add the brewer’s yeast and oats to the cucumber/honey mixture and process to mix fully.
To use, apply to clean face and neck skin and leave on for anywhere from 15 minutes to a half hour. Rinse well. (courtesy of www.SpaIndex.Com )
